Perfect turquoise warm waters and white, fine sand. This is one of the most picturesque beaches we've seen and incredibly quiet. If you're in La Paz, Balandra is a must visit!

A lovely beach some 30 minutes south of La Paz. There are palapas for shade along the beach and kayaks for hire too. Worth a visit.
